Lenzing ensures social aspects of its pulp supply through FSC® certification, aligning with ILO requirements. Its chemical supply chain is monitored via EcoVadis assessments, occasionally added by TfS audits and Lenzing’s own visits. In 2023, no significant risks for incidents of child labor, forced or compulsory labor, and potential threats to the right of freedom of association and collective bargaining among suppliers were currently known.
